The Women Traders in the AfCFTA event at the Expo 2020 Dubai is a unique opportunity to bring together AfCFTA entrepreneurs, innovators and business leaders highlighting outstanding contributions, successes and challenges and showcasing creativity.
The event will highlight the major progress and successes made by the women and the challenges they faced and shared lessons learned.
tralac is organising a webinar on 25 October 2021, focusing on specific issues policymakers need to address in responding to the challenges and opportunities offered by digital trade in Africa.
The basis for the discussion will be the book ‘Adapting to the digital trade era: challenges and opportunities’, edited by Maarten Smeets which contains contributions by WTO Chair holders, members of the Advisory Board and WTO Secretariat staff.
In this, tralac Newsletter, we focus on the settlement of disputes involving intra-African trade and economic integration. One of the reasons for doing so is that we want to draw attention to the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Protocol on Dispute Settlement and the role it could play in furthering a new rules-based trade regime.
tralac maintains a collection of regional and national trade-related resources and policy documents, including copies of the texts and annexes of regional trade agreements from the African RECs, the AfCFTA, TFTA and African Union.
We also house resources on Africa’s global trade relations, including the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the EU, BRICS trade, and Brexit.
